  1. If intense dogfights and Yankie banter sound appealing then Heroes of the Pacific is for you; sadly the repetitive gameplay is a major deciding for everybody else.

    Great for joystick jockeys who like their games tough and frantic. [Jan 2005, p.102]

    It's a real shame Heroes of the Pacific doesn't include a proper save system and better balancing. Richer multiplayer and instant action modes would be nice, too. Otherwise, this is an addictive air combat game that hits all the right notes: daring, adventure, and non-stop action.
  4. Heroes of the Pacific isn't going to win over simulation fans, but if you're looking for an easy-to-play World War II flight combat game, and you've got a decent gamepad, give it a shot.

    Take Heroes seriously and it fizzles. But as a loosey-goosey melodrama, it's not half bad. [Apr 2006, p.64]

    Heroes of the Pacific
    Story
    The story starts on pearl harbour on the 7th December when you are told to take off immediately to defend the skies above your base and all of the battleships moored on battleship row. From here you will fight your way though the war to get revenge on the enemy while going though historic battles and having dues against the 13th squadron. You also have a variety of planes from fighters to bombers and torpedo planes which are upgradeable and new models from both side of the war as well as British and German planes.
    Suitability
    The game has been recommended for teenagers due to the violence and use of strong language though the game but you can play with other people using the online connection and LAN line.
    Playability
    This is a good game to play because you are able to relive some of the battles from World War 2 from the pilot’s perspective as well as using some of the planes and weapons from the day. The graphics for the planes, ships and explosions are of high quality which also includes the sounds that surround you in the game.

    Tried every thing but heroes would not connect to my PC logtech controller. No reply from help desk. Put it in the bin.
